I think they were asking what subjects or majors you would see the labels you have studying in school !!

thank you !!! since there wasn’t any labels specifically mentioned, i just did a few different ones. but really, any label could do any major if you want them to !! it all depends on your character’s personal interests, which may or may not reflect their label !! i found it difficult to do it for labels based on personality, as opposed to interests. such as the vixen, the connard, etc !! i honestly feel as though any label could very well be interested in completing any major, if the interest is there !! if you have any questions about why i chose the major’s i did for a particular label, feel free to ask !!! i understand that some of the reasoning might not be as easily understood without an explanation !! all of the following majors were found from the following websites:  this, this, this, this. i also found a lot of major’s that i couldn’t fit into each of the labels, so if anyone wants a full masterlist of college major’s, let me know !!

Hello, this may sound silly but i'm currently enrolled to attend Art Center next year but, upon consideration (also the fact i have no money that i've had to push my acceptance by a YEAR) and your own information, i'm thinking of dropping the school altogether and going to a cheaper option (LCAD being a better option in my option) so i was wondering if i'm being rash in this idea? I know ArtCenter has a lot of name recognition, internship, and career help, but is that worth going into dept for?

i get a lot of asks from people who ask me if they should go to art school and my answer is always just “hell no no”, so i think i will make this my master Don’t Go to Art School post.

ok here’s the bottom line: just don’t go to art school. don’t go!! don’t go to any accredited art school!! unless you have a full ride scholarship or close to it, don’t go!! literally every working professional i have met since graduating a year ago has agreed with me. we love to get together and bitch about how art school is a waste of time and money.

an education at art center will cost you about $200,000 in tuition alone. lcad isn’t much better and runs about $120,000. during my time at art center, i had a scholarship and help from my parents and i still owe $30,000 in student loans.

and honestly art center didn’t help me get the job i have today. literally all it did for me was introduce me to talented and friendly people who are willing to extend a hand to help each other out in the field. but making friends shouldn’t have to cost you $200,000 lmaooooooo.

here’s my super simple guide to getting a job in animation:

1. move to L.A. this is non-negotiable. all the studios are here. i’ve had uber drivers that have studio hookups and i’ve been offered jobs just sitting in a cafe in burbank and drawing. just existing in the epicenter of animation is an advantage.

2. welcome to L.A! it’s really hot here but i hope you enjoy it. now that you’re here, let’s not go to art school.

3. here are some much cheaper options: (one of my old teachers from art center teaches a ton of workshops and classes all around town

and if you absolutely insist on going to some kind of 4 year college-like thing, try it is about a quarter of the cost of art center, which is still pretty steep imo, but is just as good.

4. i’m even going to give you a cheat guide on what you should study (all of this you can find online for free btw!! just google it!! damn just try pinterest even!! or buy a book!!), based on what i studied at art center. design, composition, perspective, anatomy, color theory, costume design, light logic, visual storytelling, character design, character acting, storyboarding, prop design, background design, environment painting, style development. there ya go that’s all you need to know.

5. lock yourself in a studio apartment for 4 years and practice all the above everyday.

6. study the work of artists working in the field that you admire. do what they do, then put your own heart into it. make work relevant to the industry today. know what your goal is. like literally, having access to soooo much artwork from working professionals on a daily basis is almost like cheating.

7. and go here and draw when you have free time. make friends with other artists. join a plein air painting club, or do a workshop, or ask for a mentorship. talk to people in the field!! make friends!!

8. make really good work and put it online. everywhere. share it!! have a website! contact recruiters! contact studios you like and ask them when they have internships open!

9. go to CTN every year and bring your portfolio. sign up for portfolio reviews. bring cards with you. ask the recruiters about internships.

10. congrats u now have a pretty good chance of getting a career in animation and u didn’t spend $200,000 for it.

i may sound bitter and jaded about art school (and maybe i am……..a little…….) but honestly i’m way more excited because after a year of working in the industry and meeting people who either didn’t go to art school or went to shitty no-name schools, i am super passionate about the fact that we live in a day and age where anyone who’s willing to put the work in and discipline themselves can develop the skills to become a professional artist without going to school. art is for everyone!! not just people who can afford school! art is fun! and great! and i want everyone who is passionate about it to succeed and not let the obstacle of $$$$$ stonewall them out of a career they’ll love!

don’t go to art school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

anonymous asked:

I'm submitting a portfolio with my college applications, what kind of work should I be putting in for a creative portfolio if I'm applying for architecture?

I think any visual art is acceptable, including but not limited to photography, drawing, painting, product design and fashion design. Whatever communicates your potential but only include work that you are proud of, there is no need to check a list of various medias.

Check this link for previous responses on this subject. and this article 12 Tips For Making an Outstanding Architecture Portfolio.

5) Hunt For The Wilderpeople

Hunt for the Wilderpeople is pure fun soaked with genuine heart contained in a hilarious adventure. It’s written with razor sharp wit and director Taika Waititi captures the delightful journey of two unlikely partners thrusted into surviving the wilderness while remaining playfully offbeat. Sam Neill is the best he’s ever been since Jurassic Park. Newbie Julian Dennison lovingly plays a 13 year old hypebeast with a heart of gold without ever feeling insincere or annoying. Waititi has a couple of hits now and hopefully his next picture will continue this trend. It’s a little film that’s my most anticipated Marvel entry of this year ;)

If you haven’t already, go see this it. It’s on Hulu. See? Simple and easy.

Late-Night Studying (Hercules Mulligan x Reader)

Originally posted by thinkingabouttheater

Pairing: Hercules Mulligan x Reader

Requested?: ‘27 herc or Benny?’

Prompt: “Did you hear that?”

Words: 700+

Warnings: Sassy Herc, Tired Fluff

A/N: I wrote this at 3 AM yesterday & never posted it until now. Oops ^^”



“Herccc,” You groaned as your head was slammed on the top of the desk, most likely leaving a bruise on your forehead. “I can’t do this.”

It was two-thirty in the morning on a Wednesday. The reason that you weren’t in bed with your boyfriend was because you were having a cram session for your final while Hercules sketched out fashion designs, sitting Indian style at the foot of the bed. You both attended the same art college and shared the same dorm along with your best friend Angelica and his friend Lafayette. While your roommates had classes during the day, you and Herc had evening and night classes, making you somewhat night owls. You and Angelica were studying in the field of Visual and Performing Arts, Lafayette was majoring in Music (specifically Songwriting), and Hercules was a Fashion Design prodigy. 

You were pursuing Performing Arts because your brother wanted to be in Theater and perform in public. You used to be very antisocial but he helped you out of your shell and you learned to embrace the limelight and the adrenaline of live performing. But, your brother had a terrible accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down. So, you vowed to keep going with your dream job and making Performing Arts your college degree choice. Your parents were proud of you but really wanted you to take on engineering like your dad but you didn’t want a boring life. So, they’ll have to deal with an actress for a daughter.

Hercules looked up from his sketchpad and chuckled at your deflated form sitting at the desk, your head planted on the wooden tabletop. He thought you were so cute when you were exhausted from cram studying. He placed his sketchbook and package of drawing pencils back in his book bag and stood, stretched his arms, and yawned. Right now, you’d be drooling over his beautifully toned muscles, but you were too occupied with dozing to sleep at the desk. Herc moved over and pulled your chair back, making your head slide off the desk. Before you could fall forward out of your seat, Herc picked you up bridal style and lightly threw you onto the bed. You let out a comfortable sigh of air out of your nose, slipping under the warm covers and nestling into the mattress.

Hercules watched you with adoration. You were just so cute when you try to sleep! He could already imagine cuddling with you for the rest of the night. But, he had to finish his sketches or it will eat at his psyche for hours and cause him no sleep. So, he sat down, pulled the chair back up to the desk, and retrieved his book bag. He just took out his sketchpad and pencils when you sat up abruptly, your once messy bun now free from the hair tie that was now laying on the pillow. You blinked a few times before glaring tiredly at your boyfriend from across the room.

“Herc,” You said with a pouty tone. “Get in bed.” 

Hercules blinked a few times before softly smiling. “I will, my dear. I just need to finish this sketch.” 

“No. You come to bed now.”

“Just give me five minutes, okay?”

“No. Come to bed now.” You were practically whining.

“(Y/N), I need to finish this.” Hercules whined back.

“Hercules Mulligan, I need you to come over her a cuddle with me.” You shot back.

Hercules looked up to look at you. His soft features now held a tired frown. The room was silent besides from the crickets outside the open window and your breathing.

“Did you hear that?” Hercules whispered.You frowned. 

“Hear what?” You whispered back.

“The sound of complete silence where you’re asleep and not bothering me.” 

You glared darkly at Hercules, who was smirking smugly. You wanted to punch him but didn’t have the energy to argue any longer. You just fell back onto the pillow and murmured about how you were going to make Hercules sleep on the couch for a few nights as you tried to get comfortable. 

After a few moments, you felt a dip in the bed behind you. You felt strong arms wrap around you as you were turned around to face Hercules. You smirked.

“So you came crawling back to me, huh?” you said smugly but also tiredly.Hercules chuckled. 

“I can still leave this bed, (Y/N).” You pulled Herc closer to you. 

“Nope. You can’t. Goodnight Herc-y. I love you.” 

Hercules kissed your forehead lightly before tucking his head in the crook of your neck.

You slowly fell asleep as Hercules murmured: 

“Sweet dreams, my princess.”

note: Happy Birthday Bianca! your edit work is marvellous, especially the lyric themed gifsets, so writing about creating art is a success too. You blend effortlessly two contrasing techniques, both of which are difficult to master, Photoshop more so, with banter, flirting and you show your own talent in the process. We’re happy to have you in the fandom


Hi guys! Sorry for being so inactive lately, but this semester I have been working on my senior thesis. For this final project I decided to do my own rendition of the folk tale, Hansel & Gretel, but as imagined as an animated film! I will be uploading some more stuff in the coming days, but this is the bulk of it :) Enjoy!

Proposal for the Usage of VOCALOID in US Colleges for Study and Educational Use

A piece I wrote for my final project in English composition in college. It’s a bit lengthy (1500+ words) but I am very proud of it. As a long-time VOCALOID fan and now a student at a US university, I wish to help spread awareness, interest, and love for everything VOCALOID in the United States during my years in college.

Paper under the ReadMore.

Teach me your painting waaayssss oh my goooddd♥

NEVERRRRR. They are SECRET and I shall take them to my GRAVEEEEE. 

Just kidding, I have a bunch of tutorials on youtube -

And this book is amazing. Get this book if you wanna learn concept art -

And if you are interested in how anime/films/games are made, invest in some ‘The Art of’ books - you can get them on Amazon. There’s tons of amazing ones (I recommend the Korra and Avatar the Last Airbender ones) -

Hope that helps <3 

model yuto
  • i’m sure most of you have seen this but it wouldn’t hurt to look at it again
  • most just assumed that yuto was always a model and he’d just laugh and explain to them that he was actually a normal college student that was pretty passionate about baseball
  • yuto’s road to modeling began when one of his friends who happened to be a visual arts major asked him to be their model for a photography project
  • he didn’t think much of it at the time but after his friend edited the photos, they enhanced his natural beauty, many complimented him and his friend
  • the photos were showcased in the art department, so most of the time architecture & design firms and etc. visited quite often in hopes recruiting students
  • and it just so happened that someone from a modeling agency stumbled upon the display on the second floor
  • honestly, it was hard for the person to track yuto down bc his schedule was jam packed bc he had to go to class, study, sleep, eat, and go to baseball practice as well as play in games since he was a star player
  • the recruiter finally caught up with yuto one day while he was getting an espresso from the campus coffee shop and he probably had foam on his lip and the recruiter probably found that adorable like can you imagine that?? cute
  • yeah so yuto was super nervous about it and since he was already dating you, how it would affect your relationship but figured some things only happen once and agreed
  • his first photo shoot was in new york for a popular watch brand and he wore a really nice suit and his hair was styled perfectly and it was safe to say that he received a positive response from the public
  • met wooseok, shinwon, and yanan and they all became best pals and they’d always be in yuto’s sc story and ig posts and it’s super cute and he’d send them to you
  • speaking of cute, even though he was super shy yuto tried his best to like all of the compliments on his ig posts and it eventually got difficult but he’d always make sure to thank everyone bc he was so humble
  • super kind to all of the staff like he asked them about their day and he knew a few of the stylists’ kids’ names and would gift them cute little plushies what a sweetheart 
  • okay let’s talk about runway yuto liked he’d seem kinda scary with his emotionless gaze as he’d walk down the runway but he’s not scary at all bc he was always giggling backstage while he changed and always managed to brighten people’s days
  • and bc he’s versatile, he got to be in a variety of photo shoots and they all turned out really nice and he became a favorite of many photographers and designers
  • so, the modeling life was really fast paced but yuto managed his stress well bc he knew that he could always talk to you about it via skype of face time but he could only hold up for so long
  • once, he called you and you could tell that he was feeling down and it was he was homesick but you did everything in your power to comfort him and he was so thankful and before either of you knew it, he was home
  • yuto made the best of his breaks and spent time with his family and you before he’d leave again but he would always feel energized and determined to make his supporters proud
  • he always showed you all of the pictures he took while he was away and made sure to send you the new ones he took
  • he laughed and blushed when you told how you saw one of his photos on a billboard bc sometimes everything felt so surreal and your support meant the world to him
  • yuto even explained why certain aspects of the places he visited reminded him of you and it was so sweet and that made you miss him more but it was okay bc you knew that he enjoyed what he did
  • stayed up on the phone with all night even though you felt bad bc he had a busy schedule the next day and he was so tired but he knew the night was well spent
  • sometimes wooseok, shinwon, and yanan would drag him out the explore the cities with them if yuto ever felt under the weather bc they knew exactly how he felt since they all were in the same situation and he was so thankful
  • even though things were really tough at times, yuto realized how lucky he was to have amazing people like you in his life to pick him up when he was down and always supported his career
